About Nutrition and Public Health, PhD - at University of Leeds

Nutrition and Public Health

Year: 2018/19


We offer a range of PhD opportunities in the School of Food and Nutrition.

The Nutrition and Public Health group is a research-intensive group, led by Professor Janet Cade, which strives (both independently and collaboratively) to create, advance and disseminate nutrition research to make an impact on population health.

Our research aims are:

• into the relationship between diet and chronic disease
• assessing the impact of nutrition interventions on diet, knowledge and attitude to food
• into the best ways of measuring the diet of populations (e.g. children)
• studying the diets of different populations (e.g. pregnant women)

The School is located in a custom designed building at the heart of the campus.
